Sorry to hear that! Good luck to you though when you finally get your appointment. Hopefully the doc will have some good news for you.

oooooh hugs I am so sorry that you are going through this. Take a deep breath and know that it’ll happen. I know that it’s probably frustrating, but don’t work yourself up or stress yourself out.

So sorry. I know how you feel–when you are TTC every little set back feels like forever!! I had a IUD taken out in Dec, my periods were super long, doc put me on BCP, then progesterone (which was suppose to stop my period, but just made me bleed harder) Finally it stopped. Now I’m just waiting for my period to start agian so I can go in for blood tests. Sigh, waiting and waiting for my period to start. Don’t know when it will since everything is out of whack, so I’m just waiting…sigh

Vent away. I’m sorry you have to wait another week. Waiting is really the worst.

Even a week feels like forever when you’ve been waiting almost a year.  Sorry 🙁  Hopefully your doctor can help you get things sorted out.  If it’s any consolation, the tests and treatments really aren’t so bad, and actually give me a lot more hope and positivity that I’m getting closer to identifying any problems, and closer to a baby!

One tip I do have is that many family doctors aren’t particularly knowledgeable about fertility related stuff.  But yours might be, or you may just need to start with them to get a referral.  My GP referred me to an OBGYN, which I saw only once before moving on to a Reproductive Endocrinologist.  The RE and her team really know what they are doing, and are the first ones to actually acknowledge the problem and treat me, rather than advising to relax and wait a little longer.  Anyway – just remember that there are specialists out there that deal with in/fertility every day, and find one if you aren’t happy with how your care is progressing with a regular doc!

Sorry for the setbacks.  I know once you get to a certain point, you just want to start the process.  I hope you are able to get in to see your doctor soon!  Good luck!

Brightside – at least you are going to start doing something about it.  I’m sure you’ll feel a lot more control.  Sorry for the annoying wait!

@Ms Mini: That’s awesome that your family doc is so well versed in fertility matters.  Good luck!!

I am sorry as I know what you are going through. I would still second PPs and say see an ob/gyn. My doc said while it sometimes does take over a year for the body to regulate- 6 months was really too long and we are taking action this month since we are reaching that mark. Family doctors can be great and its good you feel comfortable, but I highly suggest seeing a specialist.

You probably already know this, but supposedly for some girls it can take up to 18 months for pregnancy to even be a possiblity after stopping Depo. At my OBGYN they strongly discourage the shot for any woman who wants to conceive in the next year or two, just because of how long it can take. They treat it like “semi-permanent birth control.” For a few women it takes a couple years but eventually regular periods come back supposedly. Could it be your body is just still recovering from it, even with just having one cycle? I’m so sorry this is happening to you 🙁
